The Host Committee for the 8th International Congress on IonicLiquids (COIL-8) welcomes you to Beijing, China on May 14-17, 2019. COIL symposium, the most influential internationalconference in the field of ionic liquids, has been successfully held for sixtimes since 2005. The scientific theme of COIL encompasses a series of topics,including cutting-edge progress in fundamental research as well as breakthroughsin practical industrial applications of this kind of fascinating materials.
COIL-8 marks the first opportunityfor China to host this conference. Interests in ionic liquids have been rapidlygrowing in China and all over the world because the distinctive properties ofionic liquids enable versatility and efficiency across many industrialapplications, which are of great importance in the pursuit of a sustainablefuture. COIL-8 will continue the tradition of bringing together scientists, engineers,and industrialists working with ionic liquids, and continue to provide a considerablystimulating forum to share frontiers of sciences, new commercial applications, anddisruptive technologies in the area of ionic liquids. This conference will alsobuild up networks and discuss future directions to promote further growth inthe utilization of ionic liquids in key areas such as Renewable Energy, EnergyStorage, Biorefinery, Environmental and Biodegradation, Separations, Catalysis,etc.
